By Tammy Moore Teague

Waldron Mayor Neil Cherry is meeting today with local business leaders of WeighTech Inc. to discuss ways to grow business in the city. This is the first of many, as Cherry plans to continue the discussion with other businesses and industries. Ultimately, the goal is to grow the local economy and add jobs.

Small growth is the goal with these luncheons. Additionally, the mayor would consider an additional 5-10 jobs being added to the area a success. He is exploring manufacturing options that would benefit those who are already here. For example, “if a company uses ball bearings, then I would like to contact that company and see if they would have any interest in moving to Waldron.”

Of course another element to industrial growth is expansion. All of these topics are slated to be discussed during these luncheons.
